3D printing doesn’t cease to amaze all those who witness its progression over the years. It developed to the level when you can 3D print a multicolor miniature on a single 3D printer. 3D printing has gone as far as enabling 3D printer owners to print their items in various types of material: from plastic to expensive metals, such as silver and gold.
3D printing is enjoyed by experts and enthusiasts alike, thanks to the immense opportunities it offers and to the availability of desktop 3D printers and 3D printer files.
3D printing has been regarded as a tool for printing one’s own tabletop miniatures from renowned video games. Warhammer-inspired 3D printed figurines are very popular among the game’s fans.

#8. Warhammer-inspired Space Orrk KombatKart
The incredible KombatKart inspired from the Warhammer 40k tabletop game is not a genuine replica of the in-game vehicle. It rather, as the modeler says it, his own interpretation.

#9. Tabletop Warhammer 40k terrain for battles
We all are used to seeing and being amazed at 3D printed game characters. But how about a video game or tabletop 3D printed terrain? Certainly, this is something all tabletop game enthusiasts will find useful.
This multipurpose, crystal terrain can be used in both 40k and in a fantasy setting.
The idea behind this cool terrain came to a father and son. And because 3D printing gets a little bit expensive, they decided to design 3D print a master mold. They have already cast the terrain in plaster and the result came out pretty nice. Just add some paint, depending on the game setting, and you have your own terrain.
Plus, you can make as much terrain as you want, using the mold.

#10. 3D printed Warhammer Space Marine costume
We have heard and even seen 3D printed game miniatures. But this man went as far as creating an impressive Warhammer Space Marine costume, using foam and a lot of 3D printing.
Gary Sterley’s fun project cost him $1300 and took about 450 hours of intense work.
The 3D printed Warhammer Space Marine’s central piece, however, is the articulated power fist, which was a little bit difficult for him to model, due to poor 3D modeling skills.
However, after a great pain and a lot of ingenuity, the costume turned out really impressive, standing 7ft tall.
Gary documented every step of his work on the Instructables page.
With such a rich collection of Warhammer 40K 3D printing files, it’s a pity not to have a 3D miniature in your collection. Little by little, you can assemble an entire army of works and Space Marine, create a tabletop game scenery for your own entertainment.
